Liam Payne: 'I'd have another baby with Cheryl before we get married'

  Liam Payne: 'I'd have another baby with Cheryl before we get married' Liam Payne is keen to have another baby with girlfriend Cheryl before they head down the aisle. The couple became first-time parents to son Bear in March (17), but the One Direction star has revealed he would rather have another baby with Cheryl before they get married. "I would probably say, if you pushed me, a baby," he told The Sun newspaper after he was asked if he would wed or have another baby first. "The options are definitely open for me on having another baby. Bear is the best creation I've ever made so I welcome the idea completely." However, he insisted he is not in a rush to add to their family of three because he is focused on his upcoming solo album. ''But, when, I don't really know," he continued. "I'm about to do an album and our for a bit so we need some time before we think about baby number two, but we've got time so that's okay.'' He also explained the couple wants to keep their family size small, but Liam and Cheryl don't know how many children they will have. ''I don't know how many I would like - but not too many," he said. "I've been told that two is like having 20. You need to have that time between them - but then look at Pharrell Williams who just had triplets - that must be crazy.'' This isn't the first time Liam has expressed an interest in expanding their family - in May (17), he revealed they had already talked about having a sibling for Bear. "We will see what happens," he told Britain's The Mirror tabloid. "We are in a routine now and loving life.

Two baby Sumatran orangutans rescued by border officials who foiled a bid to smuggle them into Thailand arrived at a wildlife centre on Wednesday, to stay until Indonesia decides on their return, officials said.

Let out of their cage, the new arrivals rubbed noses with another pair of baby orangutans already resident at the centre. They received a bath before exploring their new surroundings, holding onto each other all the while.

"Because they are still small, we have to keep these two inside a nursery enclosure as they need close attention," said Banpot Maleehuan, director of the Khao Pratab Chang Wildlife Breeding Center in central Thailand.

The two-year-old animals, one male and one female, will live at the centre until a court case is completed and Indonesia decides whether to take them back, he added.

The primates were among a group of animals rescued in June at the Padang Besar customs checkpoint on the border with Malaysia, and a Malaysian national was arrested for attempting to smuggle them, media said.

Orangutans, the world's largest tree-climbing mammals, are classified as critically endangered by the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES).

They are native to Indonesia and Malaysia, and around 60,000 are left in the rainforests of Borneo and Sumatra, the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) estimates, down from around 230,000 animals a century ago.

Deforestation and land clearing for pulp, paper and palm oil plantations has depleted the habitat of orangutans, which means "person of the forest" in Malay. Fires are often set by companies to clear the land.
